Jack Leiter struggles in MLB debut as Rangers hold off Tigers

Josh Hader, Astros agree to record five-year $95M deal

All-Star closer Josh Hader agreed to terms on a five-year, $95 million contract with the Houston Astros on Friday, significantly bolstering a team that has made seven successive appearances in the American League Championship Series, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The Astros’ pickup of Hader comes on the heels of news that Kendall Graveman, one […]
